Her notoriety is not necessarily due to her stylized harlequin outfit or her complex personality that fuels her unconditional toxic love for the Joker. What makes this notorious femme fatale specifically unique from her fellow Batman villains is her character was originally introduced on television instead of in the DC comic books.

The animated villainess quickly gained popular with Batman fans, culminating in multiple appearances on the TV series and eventually getting her own graphic novel in 1994 called Mad Love that explores her origin and reveals her true identity as Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel, a psychiatrist for a mental hospital called Arkham Asylum that confined The Joker.arkham asylum nurse  Harleen becomes infatuated with Gotham City’s most infamous villain and Joker uses her crush to manipulate her emotionally and corrupt her morally into a criminal.  The pair eventually have a love affair and the Joker grooms Harleen to become his infamous sidekick, The Harley Quinn.

If you are in a big hurry, many of the seller above have expedited or overnight next day delivery so make sure to read all of their details. So let’s review these Harley Quinn Halloween costumes. The first outfit Arkham Asylum Harley Quinn is produced by Secret Wishes and Rubie’s. This attractive costume features a nice darker black and red tone faux leather top that reveals the shoulders and stomach. So if you want to show off and look really sexy on Halloween, we recommend this one. This will get you plenty of attention. This officially licensed costume also includes the matching red and black pants as well as fingerless gloves and choker. You can purchase these in sizes small, medium or large.

On the other hand, if you are a little more modest, you can put on the more traditional Harley Quinn costume that you see her wearing in Batman The Animated Series and early versions of her in the comic books. This one is only available in sizes small or medium so we don’t recommend it for larger women. It features a red and black jumpsuit with accessories such as the black eye mask, white collar, harlequin headpiece, red/black gloves and boot tops! This version has been selling for years and a good costume for those who can’t afford the hand sewn cosplay versions. This year we saw the release of new outfit designs based on the new animated series DC Superhero Girls which is for a younger audience and for the other crowd, we have the new Suicide Squad where more street wise Harley is featured in a new blue and red color coordinated jacket, shirt, and shorts. This is just a small sample of what is available. We will be posting more Harley cosplay soon! Happy Halloween everyone.

Harley Quinn’s notorious character initially debuted on an animated Batman TV series during the ’90s. She was created by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm. Her popularity was noted by DC Comics who adapted her character in the comic book universe with Joker and Batman. Fans first saw Harley get adapted to print in the graphic novel Mad Love where we learn a lot about her origin. Dini and Timm were also involved in Mad Love, writing and drawing her character in the comic version of the character. The story explored Dr. Harleen Quinzel’s first meetings with the Joker who was a resident of Arkham Asylum, a mental hospital where Dr Quinzel worked as a psychiatrist. Despite her profession, the Doctor had deep emotional issues and a personality disorder, which made her an easy victim for the manipulative Joker. She became infatuated with The Joker, purposely setting up interviews with him, asking him personal questions and insisting that he called her Harley Quinn. The Joker took note of her obsession with him and saw her crush an opportunity for hims to find a way to escape from the asylum. The Joker hooked her into an abusive relationship where he would emotionally manipulate her. He eventually influences her to destroy her profession at the hospital by helping him escape and joining him in his life of crime as his sidekick the Harley Quinn. Together, they terrorize Gotham City and seek revenge against their ultimate rival, Batman.

In Batman: Arkham Asylum, Harley Quinn’s outfit changed dramatically. Instead of her trademark red and black jester jumpsuit, her costume became a combination of a white nurse dress and a multi-color leather outfit consisting of a corset, long boots and glove-lets. Harley dropped her jester cap to reveal her blonde hair in pigtails, wearing a nurse’s cap. Overall, the character’s new look was more goth and punk, giving her a more edgy and sinister appearance that reflected her unstable and wild personality.
